Porsches in Shenandoah Valley The Shenandoah Region of the Porsche Club of America (PCA) is dedicated to enjoying Porsche cars in central Virginia. While Porsches are the common element, our members provide the club with variety and enthusiasm. We organize scenic driving tours, run six autocrosses each year, and take part in high-performance driver's education (DE) events at the Virginia International Raceway and other tracks. Our premier event is the Richmond Porsche Meet (RPM), a June weekend including a concours, lunch, driving tour, tech session, banquet, and an autocross at the Southside Speedway. We also hold a Christmas party and several other social meetings annually.

Nonmembers are welcome to participate in a social meeting, a driving tour, or an autocross. Learn more about the Shenandoah Region PCA and our upcoming events, the PCA Zone 2 comprising 10 nearby regions, the national PCA, and how to JOIN PCA.

First Settlers Region Fall DE
on the VIR Full Course

Join the First Settlers Region (FSR) for their fall 2018 Drivers Education (DE) at VIR in Alton, VA. They will be running the Full Course on Friday and Saturday, October 19 & 20. This event is open to any driver 18 and over with a valid US-issued driver's license and with any make/model of car. Please bring your driver's license with you to registration.

An instructor will be assigned to Green and Blue Group drivers and there will be daily classroom sessions for the Green, Blue, and White run groups. If you are signing up as an Intermediate Solo or Advanced driver, you will be asked for references if you have not run with FSR before.

Registration Fees: Drivers: $475.00, Instructors with one student: $225.00, Instructors with two students: Complimentary (limited slots).

Are you new to DE and on the fence about whether Driver's Education is for you? Sign up for the DE INTRO! For a $50 fee, they will get you out on the track in your car with an instructor for a single session mid-day on Saturday. Standard DE safety requirements apply, so you'll need a Snell SA 2010 or newer rated helmet. FSR has just a few loaners available, so please email the registrar before you sign up if you'd like to borrow one.

Are you an Advanced driver wanting to step up your game and lower your lap times? Contact the registrar, who can put you in touch with Peter Krause so you can arrange for individualized coaching by "The Dean of VIR", or with Mike Skeen, recent PWC winner at VIR with many years of professional level success and experience at VIR. Any arrangements are made strictly between you and the coach and you must follow all normal PCA FSR HPDE rules and schedules.

Fall Foliage Tour
Fall Foliage Tour 2018:

It's that time of year again to take a drive through the countryside of Virginia and enjoy the fall foliage. The Shenandoah Region drive this year is going to take us back to Sperryville and a wonderful lunch will be at the Headmasters Pub, 12018 Lee Highway, Sperryville, VA 22740 (map). The Pub will have a new menu for October; click here to see it.

We did a similar drive two years ago and the 55 miles of curving country roads — routes 15 & 231 — through Greene, Orange, Madison, Culpeper, and Rappahannock counties should be beautiful for fall foliage.

We will meet at the Dunkin Donuts, a very short drive off Interstate 64 in Zion Crossroads (map). The actual address for Dunkin Donuts is 79 Freedom Drive, Gordonsville, VA 22942 to input into your GPS. Please plan to arrive between 10:15 and 10:30 AM, Sunday, October 21, 2018. The drivers meeting will be at 10:45 AM and the planned departure time will be 11 AM.

Please register via by clicking here so we can get an accurate headcount for the Pub. Registration will close at 11:59 PM on Thursday, October 18, 2018.
